NEWS: Jaguares flyhalf Nicolas Sanchez has been suspended for one week for dangerous play during his team's 36-24 win over the Lions last weekend.

A SANZAAR Judicial Committee Hearing found that Sanchez contravened Law 10.4(g) Dangerous charging, after he was cited during a Super Rugby match at the weekend.

The incident occurred in the 38th minute of the match played at Velez Marsfield in Buenos Aires.

The SANZAAR Judicial Hearing held via video conference on March 14 was before Robert Stelzner, John Langford and David Croft.

In his finding, the Judicial Committee Chairman Stelzner ruled the following: "Having considered the citing commissioner's description of the incident and the available video footage the Committee amended the charge to Law 10.4(g) Dangerous Charging and accept the player's admission in respect of that contravention.  

"Having further considered all the available evidence, including the player's own account, and submissions from his legal representative, Aaron Lloyd, the Judicial Committee found the player's actions to have breached the red card threshold." 
 
"With respect to sanction the Judicial Committee deemed the act of foul play to merit a low end entry point of two weeks. Taking into account various mitigating factors, including the player's excellent record and early guilty plea, the Judicial Committee reduced the suspension to one week."

"The player is therefore suspended for one week, up to and including Saturday, March 18."
